Fraudulent job ads
We are regularly screening for illegal job ads that request for personal or financial information. However, from time-to-time, these job ads may appear on JobStreet.com’s site.
Phishing is a type of fraud whereby someone sends you an email, posing as JobStreet.com or another trusted company, in an attempt to acquire your username, password or credit card details. These deceptive messages often mimic legitimate and trusted organisations, like JobStreet.com, and can be sent via email, SMS, instant messaging or social media platforms. The aim of these emails is to trick you into clicking on links to a fake website where you are encouraged to enter confidential details or you may accidentally download a ‘Trojan’ or ‘key logging’ program, which could compromise your security.
Malware is malicious software also known as Trojans which are inserted into a computer system for the purpose of causing harm, such as stealing personal and financial information.
Scams and spam
Electronic junk mail is commonly known as spam. These are electronic messages you haven’t asked for that are sent to your email account, mobile phone number, or instant messaging account. The content of spam messages varies. Some messages promote legitimate products or services, while others will attempt to trick you into following a link to a scam website where you will be asked to enter your bank account or credit card details.
